west african nations. i have spoken to the nigerian president, who is in london today, about that issue. most of all, however, a political strategy is needed alongside the military efforts. on the gap between ceilings and payments, the gap is between 960 billion on commitments and 908.4 billion on payments. that is just over 5%, which is not untypical, given the experience of recent years. the european commission thought that that gap was deliverable, so i think that answers that question. on eu-us trade, i spoke to president obama about half an hour ago, and i think we are making progress. i will continue strongly to push and support that measure. on the issue of how we use the european union to encourage growth, one of the greatest things we can do is to complete the single market in digital, in energy and in services, and it is this government, working with allies, who are delivering precisely that. on the overall deal, there is a real need to ensure that the european parliament supports it. we are often challenged about the friends we have in europe, but i would challenge the right
